i had this come up and rulebook was checked but no clarification was found, so if you cast a spell in melee targeting the model your in melee with and another friendly model is engaging the same model, is does the spell randomize onto my own model/models, or does the spell become essentially a melee attack?

It ignores the in melee penalty (because thats what the rule says) but not the randomising on misses (because it dosent say that).

Page 77 under Magic attack rolls says that you randomize, so yes it does say that.

That was my point also.

You ignore the penalty, but not the randomization.

Sorry if my post confused more than helped.

P.80 of hordes prime mk ii references back to p.58 target in melee but further states:
if you are not in melee with the person you cast it on, you have a -4 penalty. if you ARE engaged you do not have the -4 penalty. You still have deviation on a miss though (that is quite clearly stated), and you could very well hit your own guys as a result.
